Signoff strolled to an easy win in the Group III Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) at Morphettville last Saturday but the Ballarat trainer flagged the possibility of spelling the import with an eye on November’s Melbourne Cup.
However, the six-year-old is one of 18 Adelaide Cup acceptors. Signoff will carry the 59kg topweight in the $400,000 contest while his stablemate Real Love has the number two saddlecloth and 55.5kg.
Signoff could start odds-on after drawing barrier two while Real Love will start from barrier 12.
The South Australian Derby winner Kushadasi has 54.5kg and barrier eight while 10 of the 18 runners have the limit weight of 53kg.
